A selection of 75 poems illustrated by Tim Budgen and written by Ian Doescher, Star Wars: I Wish I Had a Wookiee is set to bring some comforting words and rhymes to the GFFA when it’s released 28th September.

StarWars.com is excited to reveal the charming cover art for the forthcoming book as well as two exclusive spreads featuring the titular poem as well as “Dad’s Luke Skywalker Figurine.”

In a format reminiscent of the often absurdly hilarious books by Shel Silverstein, Budgen’s artwork visualizes a 10-year-old’s dreams of playing fetch with a pet AT-AT, a little girl escaping the Empire in her T-16 Skyhopper, and more while Doescher, who previously penned the Shakespearean versions of the Skywalker saga, captures the precocious and imaginative play inspired by the Star Wars galaxy, with rhyming poems that are suitable for young fans and the young at heart.
